The Address | Benghazi – Libya
The British Foreign Ministry warned on Sunday its citizens against traveling to Libya, asking its nationals who are still in Libya to leave immediately because of the security situation it described as fragile.
The Foreign Ministry said on its official website that the security situation in Libya indicates a potential outbreak of armed confrontations without prior warning.
“There remains a high threat throughout the country of terrorist attacks and kidnap against foreigners, including from Daesh-affiliated extremists (formerly referred to as ISIL) and Al Qaida, as well as armed militias.” UK’s Foreign Ministry warned.
Earlier today, the German Government has warned its citizens not to travel to Libya and called on its nationals living in Libya to leave the country immediately, citing security concerns.
Yesterday also, the U.S. Embassy in Libya warned of an “imminent” attack in Tripoli.
The Libyan capital and its neighboring cities and towns are under the authority of the US-backed government of PM Fayez al-Sarraj, while the rest of the country is secured by the Libyan National Army. The government in Tripoli did not issue any statement or comment in this regard.
